Eating right while implementing a great skincare routine does not guarantee us skin that doesn’t sag. With age, our skin’s structure will break down with less cellular activity. Weight fluctuations, sun damage, and genetics also contribute to our sagging skin. To retain youthful, firm, and flexible skin, we will need to take skin care to another level.
For us to attain tighter skin will require cosmetic intervention. Surgical options may offer the results we want, but the risks and potential complications may seem a bit drastic to many. The good news is, there are several non-surgical options which can restore your skin by increasing its firmness and elasticity.
Clean Up Your Diet
Eating right leads to good skin health. As with most health concerns, a good diet is essential for recovery, and that includes sagging skin. Foods rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C will aid the body in its production of collagen, a natural component which is responsible for skin support and preventing your skin to sag. Vitamin C will also prevent inflammation which can accelerate aging.
Researchers have found soy to enhance elasticity and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. These are just a few examples of how your diet can be your first line of defense against the aging signs of sagging skin.
The billion-dollar cosmetic market has made many claims on how to solve your skin woes. The problem is many cosmetic products found at your local pharmacy offer little help or none. Retinol and vitamin C serums are the best for fighting the effects of aging skin. The problem is finding enough concentration of these active ingredients in retail products.
Medical grade serums found in medical spas or dermatology centers will provide stronger concentrations which will lead to healthier skin. Combine these skin-restoring serums with cosmetic procedures like light therapy can help deliver their effects to deeper layers of skin tissue.
Aesthetic skin care is not the same as it has been. Technology has advanced skin care to more options. These options include successful results which are less invasive, non-surgical, and more subtle. They also have the benefit of safety and convenience.
Traditionally, tightening skin was reduced to surgical procedures like a facelift, browlift, or eyelid surgery. Or one could opt for chemical peels or dermabrasion which was not as invasive but wounded the skin to heal it. Thankfully, we have more options today.
Consumers of cosmetic care are looking for highly effective treatments which are less harsh, convenient, and requires little recovery and downtime. Procedures like IPL treatments have fit this bill. But the latest rage is LED light therapy.
Convenience and Comfort
LED light therapy offers NASA technology that is safe, convenient, quick, and comfortable. Another benefit is its ease of application. This easy delivery system paves the way for devices which are perfect for home use. Because multiple treatment regimens are necessary for optimal results, LED light therapy has become a home treatment using the same degree of treatment found in a medical spa or doctors office.
LED light therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production which will, in turn, tighten and firm your skin. Home use will ensure more discipline, completing multiple sessions for attaining the best results.
